A Look Inside The Country Living Grain Mill

The Country Living Mill is without a doubt the most rugged manual grinder on the market today. Two rugged Ball Bearings. The only grinder like it. Built smart for tough times.

It is the only grinder, of which I am aware, that utilizes two industrial-grade ball-bearings. Other comparable grinders that cost around $200.00 more than the Country Living mill use brass bushings.

Many grinders use only one large bushing, but the Country Living Mill has two sealed ball bearings spaced apart* which increases the stability of the drive shaft and reduces bearing strain.

*The bearing placement can be seen highlighted in red on the diagram to the right.

The photo below that shows what the grinder looks like when the threaded adjustment knob, the rotating burr, the drive key and grain auger have been removed. The grinder must be broken down to this point to install the bean and corn auger. If you wished, you could now pull the drive shaft out of the mill from the crank side. You can see that this grinder is amazingly easy to take apart and clean. Picture of the grinder on the Country Living Grain Mill



The quest for a superior grinding plate has been neither easy nor inexpensive.

Fine - Tough - Long Lasting - High-Carbon Steel: Country Living Grinding Plates.



No other grinding plates in the world go through more exhaustive processes than the plates for your Country Living Mill.When I started manufacturing the Country Living Grain Mill we used a cast iron plate made from sand castings. They worked, but there was not enough control over every aspect of the grinding plate. So recently we decided to spend thousands of dollars more on an injection die that would allow us to create individual wax patterns for each set of plates. For many centuries, artisans of fine (and very expensive) sculptings have used this "Lost Wax" process for reproducing their masterpieces.

This state of the art "investment" casting method is so accurate that it could reproduce even a fingerprint if necessary. So, just like the great sculptors who have captured their timeless and priceless creations in metal over the centuries, each set of Country Living high-carbon steel grinding plates is formed using a refined version of the ancient time-proven lost wax process.

Each plate has its own wax model which is coated with a colloidal silica slurry. Then, it's put into an autoclave (an oven using both heat and pressure). This, of course, melts the wax (Lost Wax) leaving only the shell. This shell, because of the heat and pressure, turns it into an extra ordinarily tough monolithic structure.

Finally, 3,000 degree molten high-carbon steel is poured into the shells. Once cooled and hardened, the plates must be machined to assure complete flatness. No other grinding plates in the world go through more exhaustive processes than the plates for your Country Living Mill.
